6 July 1014Hi - I'm Carrie.
I'm originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania and I moved to Belize on May 1, 2011 after visiting and exploring the country about 6 different times in 3 years.
I live in San Pedro and work as a chef, first mate, house keeper, bartender, and pretty much whatever else they need me to be for a luxury sailing company that is based out of Belize City - but I really want to be a writer when I grow up... if that ever happens.
When I'm not out on a charter, I do massages on the island (Barefoot Massage) and sometimes fill in at one of the local bars.
I lived in the jungle of the Stann Creek district for almost a year before coming back to the island - some of that time was spent in an unfinished house with no running water or electricity. Some of my best blogging was done from the jungle - I found life to be way more interesting over there.
My original plans didn't quite work out since I've been here and now I'm just kind of rolling with what life gives me and have no idea what my future holds.... but Belize is definitely my home base for a while. Unless, you know, some kind of amazing offer comes up and I need to move to, like, Fiji or somewhere awesome.
You can follow me on Facebook, Pintrest, and Instagram by clinking on one of the icons at the top of my page. I haven't bothered to figure out Twitter yet... but I guess I'll have to, eventually.
